These warm, golden muffins make a great accompaniment to soup, stew or any other cold-weather entree. My family loves the cheese and pepper flavor. —Susan Kelm, Mineral Point, Wisconsin

Way too bland for my taste even though I used sharp cheddar that I shredded myself. Texture was great but the recipe is missing something to bring out the flavors.

Made these last night and they were all eaten up! Very quick and simple recipe- a nice accompiment to a meat and potatoes meal and were very fluffy and light. They take mere minutes to whip up and taste great warm from the oven. I made suggest doubling the amount of pepper but that is just my preference. Also, add some salt- maybe about 1/2 teaspoon. Also, I would not suggest baking them for the time suggested- I baked mine for only 15 minutes and they were fully cooked. Overall, a yummy and convient recipe. Will make again.

These were okay. I used mild cheddar, but I think they would be better with sharp, for more flavor. Tasty with cheesy potato soup, though.
